The GOP Clown Show Continues in Gubernatorial Race: Baldwin Out

It seems that Bob Fanning wasn’t raising enough money for Chuck Baldwin to raise his profile in Montana, so, despite telling his congregation just weeks ago that God had chosen him to run for Lt. Governor, Mr. Baldwin dropped out of the race today.

This quote is especially rich:

Chuck Baldwin said he owes the people of Montana a credible, legitimate campaign, and this is no longer possible. He said he cannot in good conscience continue with the race.

It’s hard to imagine how someone like Chuck Baldwin ever imagined that he would bring credibility or legitimacy to any race for higher office, given his unorthodox views about the Constitution and incredibly intolerant beliefs.

It’s got to be an especially difficult blow for Mr. Fanning, given the team’s recent endorsement by the hugely significant endorsements of Toby Bridges of Lobo Watch and John Andre of the Shoshone Wilderness Adventures Team Sports.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.

  • Sniff. Sniff. This is a sad day for Montana politics. After the last Lege, I was so hoping that the Pubbies would continue their long held tradition of the crazy. And now, this! Oh well, guess that God has sumthin' even BIGGER in store for Pastord Bulbdim. I heard he's buildin' a new Alamo up there in the north country, GOD'S Alamo. God tol him that he must be the new Davey Crackpot.
